    Kanye West

    Struggled to break up Late Reg and Graduation, oddly. Pablo has far too much filler to break the upper ranks, but the highlights are higher than WTT and 808s. Dark Fantasy, College Dropout and Yeezus are — paradoxically — 9.5 or 10s without necessarily being perfect. When Kanye had the flaws and flab in check, those contradictions seemed to only elevate his music and message. When you factor in his work on The Blueprint too, plus all the production and all the guest spots for others... he owns the 21st century. The first 15 years of it at least.

    Kanye West

    1. MBDTF 2. College Dropout 3. Yeezus = 4. Graduation = 4. Late Registration 6. Watch The Throne = 7. 808s = 7. TLOP 9. Jesus Is King 10. Ye
  4. Wasn't castigating you in the slightest btw! Just chewing through my own tendency to see 2014 as an all-guitar trio out loud, too. (Hetfield is a quintessential guns, flags & freedom chud so balances the scales anyway)
  5. You'd imagine 2014 was tempered by the Saturday slot which — as with Sunday in 2015 — was originally held in the hope of getting Prince. Plus, Metallica have two non-white members, and are as musically diverse as the fest has ever booked for that slot, so it didn't feel like a uniform year necessarily. I really doubt the Eavii would think twice if Reg and Macca were both available and keen to sign on. They are terrific gets in any year, let alone when forced to find a viable superstar replacement for Taylor/Kendrick, should it come to that.
  6. If there's a particular subset of people who: A) Are Kendrick fans but hate pop music, Elton included B) Will not be adequately satiated by the likely AJ Tracey/Wolf Alice headline slot on the Other at the same time C) Care more about hypothetical billings for a festival that did not go ahead two years ago, to the extent that it overrides their enjoyment of Glasto 2022 Then they will probably be fine with Dave replacing Lana as a sub. Everyone's happy.
  7. Elton is also a noted Young Thug superfan, for what it's worth. Halfway there basically.
  8. I don't think I'd have broached the topic til I saw those dates. Like the ocean pulling back before a tidal wave...
  9. 2022: Coldplay — Macca — Dua/Reg 2023: Kendrick — Taylor — Arctics I can see it.
  10. Coldplay for 2022. Guys, I'm sorry. But it will have been 6 years since the last performance, they have the closest relationship with the fest of any active group, and they're obviously the first replacement on speed dial. They're still by far the largest band of the century and probably what Michael and Emily are thinking will be the right fit to bring some magic to the farm after tough years away. Even if Chris got a bit red-faced after jokes about him hogging the limelight with Kylie and Stormzy, the beige boys in rainbow overalls can't be overlooked at this stage.
  11. Yeah similarly Invaders Must Die was absolutely perfect for 2009, can't deny that they met the moment head on.
  12. Using singles charts metrics to mark LCD's popularity is as outdated as every Prodigy album since about 1994, and using intelligentsia-pleasing albums to mark The Prodigy's popularity is as outdated as every reference, hook and bassline James Murphy shamelessly pinched. It was a very good final featuring two very good bands!
